Outside Scholarships

Ashland University intends to give students who receive an outside scholarship the maximum benefit possible. Students are required to report to the Financial Aid Office, in writing, the name of the scholarship and the amount awarded for each academic year as soon as the student becomes aware of his/her eligibility for the outside award. The outside grant or scholarship will be added to the other aid the student is entitled to, as long as total financial aid does not exceed a student’s need or cost of attendance.


Your outside scholarship search for the following academic year should start in the fall. Some helpful websites for national scholarship searches are www.finaid.org, www.fastweb.com and www.collegeboard.com. You should also check with your hometown’s Chamber of Commerce, Education Foundations, City Hall or even with your high school’s guidance counselor to learn about local sources of funding. Below is a list of outside scholarship sources that have been sent to Ashland University to disseminate to our students.

Lexington Law, the trusted leader in helping people repair their credit reports understands the importance of financial planning and maintaining a great credit score, especially for college students. For this reason, the company is pleased to offer the “Lexington Law Scholarship Award” fund.

Affording college can be a challenge. With the increasing costs of tuition, books, housing, utilities, food, etc., students need all the help they can get. Sometimes that means taking out a loan or using a credit card to cover costs. Taking on debt may be unavoidable to complete an education, but students can learn to avoid harming their credit scores in the process.

Lexington Law is offering this scholarship to students in the United States who write an essay about what a credit score means to them, how they think they will use it in the future, and how they will maintain a good credit score during their college years. Lexington Law believes it is never too early to start thinking about your credit score and your credit report.

YouTube submissions are strongly encouraged, although not required.  Video should be no longer than 4 minutes.  (Essays submitted via YouTube must also be submitted in writing.)
  • Submit a content contribution agreement along with the essay.   Content Contribution Agreement
  • Email completed materials to scholarship@lexingtonlaw.com.

Who Can Apply?

Any current, full-time student of an accredited US university or college with a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5 is welcome to apply. There is no age requirement.

When Is The Deadline to Apply?

Do I Have To Currently Be Enrolled In School To Qualify?

Yes.  The scholarship award will be sent directly to the financial aid office of the winning candidates’ institution.

Lamps.com 2014 Scholarship Essay Contest

“…nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”  So wrote Benjamin Franklin in 1789.  Were he alive today, our fellow Philadelphian might also include high college tuition on that list.  At Lamps.com, our Team is painfully and personally aware of the high cost of attending college.  We also realize the undeniable value a college degree presents in today’s job market, and appreciate that when budgeting for college, every little bit helps.  In that spirit, Lamps.com is excited to announce our first ever Lamps.com College Scholarship Essay Contest.

The premise is pretty simple, write us a 500-1000 word essay on the topic below and submit it by June 1, 2015.  Our judges will review every submission and pick the one we think best addresses the topic.  The winning essayist will win $1000 to use towards tuition, room & board, books, food, or really, however a winning essayist thinks $1000 would be best spent. 

Here’s how to enter:

  • Expound upon this question, in 500-1000 words:
    • How does lighting affect your learning environment or living space?
    • Include your name, address, email, phone number, school and year in your header.
    • Name your file firstname.lastname.scholarship and save it as a Word Doc (e.g., joe.smith.scholarship.doc)
    • Send your finished essay to scholarship@lamps.com.
    • Make sure you make your submission by June 1, 2014
    • Profit?

Here’s what we are looking for in submissions:

  • Something really cool.  As in, really cool.  Just like everything written on this page.
  • Make sure it’s grammatically correct, has good punctuation, isn’t blatantly plagiarized, and is witty. 
  • Don’t send more than one entry.  That’s annoying.
  • We will pick a winner based purely upon our subjective review of your writing.
  • Make sure you make your submission by June 1, 2014.

If you win we will cut you a nice, big check for $1000.  Unfortunately, no, you will not get one of the huge, cardboard prize checks, just a normal bank check, which is still bigger than a regular check.

  • Employees of Lamps.com, Inc. and associated companies, as well as their immediate family members are ineligible to participate.

Scholarship Description:

http://maryland-criminallawyer.com/student-scholarships.html

As a dedicated Maryland federal criminal defense attorney, Kush Arora focuses his practice on representing individuals who have been accused of a variety of offenses, from misdemeanors to felonies. The work of a criminal defense attorney is as tough as it is important. That is because the presumption of innocence, what many of us know as the right to be considered innocent until proven otherwise, is the cornerstone of our justice system. As such, it requires sound legal counsel for all those accused. Sometimes, it is the laws that are flawed. In other instances, the way in which penalties are calculated and administered may be unduly punitive. Mr. Arora takes his role and responsibilities within the Maryland criminal justice system very seriously. He also takes seriously the need for students to recognize whether they believe the laws that govern society are just or unjust, and why. These traits are valuable in all citizens, not just criminal justice professionals, and Mr. Arora is dedicated to providing financial support and academic recognition to those who will pursue or support reasoned legal reform in the future.

Whether those goals are met with a law degree and practice, by pursuing a degree in another field that works within the criminal justice system, or through civic participation, Mr. Arora understands that the success of the criminal justice system depends on the success of the bright young women and men who are pursuing their academic and professional dreams today. To help them achieve their goals, and to further bolster the system that he so proudly serves, Mr. Arora has established the Kush Arora Criminal Justice Reform Scholarship. This scholarship will award $500 to a deserving student who has demonstrated a thoughtful, well-reasoned view of whether certain laws and criminal justice policies are just or unjust.
